Chennai: "I admire the actor in Kamal Haasan and not the politician in him. He lacks experience and it is evident from his words", said BJP national secretary H Raja today.

Addressing press persons after a meeting of party workers in Saidapet today, the BJP leader said, "It will be better if he doesn't get involved inĀ  politics.'

On the water crisis in city, Raja, said, "People are suffering as many districts are facing the issue."

He cited the ingenious desalination process employed by Israel to convert sea water for drinking purpose. "We are not employing such methods as there is no proper planning," he rued.

When asked about the release of Cauvery water to Mettur recently, he said that the government should ensure that water is not wasted and properly utilised.

He also praised the Modi government for not only being a responsible government but also a responsive government.

He also spoke about the recent train accident in the city where four died after slipping from the footboard.

"Increasing train frequency is a must but travelling on footboard should be avoided."

Asked about protests for his alleged 'controversial' statements recently, Raja defended by saying that he only speaks truth and many see it as a controversy.
